inside the best buy store in union city. shoppers getting the early start to black friday. the store opened the doors just a few minutes ago and, you know, it's relatively calm, relatively sane. the first person in line did tell us that he had been there since monday morning. popular items seemed to be the big tvs and game consoled. best buy stores across the country staying open now around the clock until 10:00 tomorrow night. >> 5:00 opening at toys 'r us. kpix 5's andria borba in san jose where the line to get in was wrapping around the store. >> reporter: it was. but just an hour later that line is all but gone. the parking lot is packed here though in san jose. that's perhaps the beginning of black friday getting banished into oblivion. lined up since 1:00. >> i'm looking for a wii u for my son's christmas present. >> reporter: with the inside of the store already staked out. >> i did it a month before.

6:07pm
that's not the only store that's been practically empty. >> reporter: several stores in the bay area open their doors early this morning including gap just to cash in early on that black friday rush. here's what the scene was like early this morning at 11:00 when gap opened its doors. yes, they did get customers but it can't compare to the typical rush and stampeding that comes with black friday. in fact, today's thanksgiving shopping was tame in comparison. earlier in the morning, we are at the ole navy in dublin expecting a line waiting for the doors to open at 9:00 at old navy, and not one person. same situation pretty quiet at this redwood city kmart. doors opened at 6 a.m. there and will stay open through black friday. that means those lights will be on the for the next 41 hours straight. in san francisco, mark kelly, kpix 5. >> while some people shop for holiday gifts others drop by grocery stores getting the last-

degrees. 57 degrees in santa rosa after a high today of 70. in fact, it was 70 in san rafael through kentfield. 70 in fairfield. and also 70 degrees in livermore. upper 60s in san jose back through santa clara and in the mid- and high 60s across the peninsula. tonight we'll tumble down into the upper 30s and 50s not as cold as last night due to a few clouds on the increase. in fact, we'll have scattered clouds throughout the va since overnight tonight. tomorrow morning we'll start off with partly cloudy conditions and end up with full-on sunshine. the extended forecast you're going to feel the difference. we have rain chances but most notably will be the cooler air mass that works its way into our forecast. right there, that's it. that's the area of low pressure that continues to spin its wheels right off the california coastline. see that right there that green on your screen? that's precipitation that's just off the coast of oceanside and san clemente and san diego going to stay off the coast, as well. this area of low pressure will continue to slide south take

its rain chances with it but it will continue to fuel some clouds into the bay area. so that's why we'll call it partly to mostly cloudy overnight. behind it here, nothing happening. upstream, that's what's going to change our forecast as early as monday. if you do have any traveling plans or expect anybody for your friday, sfo starts off with clouds then sunshine a high of 64. tomorrow night's low of 49 degrees. meanwhile up and around the country we go. seattle rain showers in the 50s. denver 58 degrees, full-on sunshine. nasty in chicago, lots of cold weather, also lots of precipitation. 35 degrees but dry in chicago and new york will be 37 degrees after a high today of 35. okay. average high in oakland is 60. 65 in the offering for shoppers tomorrow. concord at 65. and mid-60s in san jose which is still 3 degrees above average. pinpoint forecast, 60s across the board pretty uniform from
6:49pm
the coast to the inland areas. only about 8-degree spread from pacifica into blackhawk but meanwhile, the winds tomorrow only out of the west five to ten miles per hour. so the air quality will be poor to unhealthy. to the north of the golden gate bridge and also to the south, that air mass is not getting mixed up so it is the third "spare the air" day of the winter season. here is your extended forecast. we call for a dry weather pattern with very little change all the way through the weekend. and then we cloud up on monday and that will lead to rain chances over the weekend. oh, speaking of the weekend, if you have plans, it's skating and it's back at the embarcadero over weekend at 64 degrees. that's your pinpoint forecast. oh, yeah, dennis in the house with sports next. ,,

10 to snap a nine-game losing streak on thanksgiving. the turkey day game is a san francisco tradition that dates back to the coolidge administration. [ yelling ] >> physical game from the beginning. quarterback kyle nelson eludes the pocket off to the races. he will do his best kaepernick impression on the outside edge and scores a touchdown. and that ties the game, yeah, how about it! how do you like it! 3rd quarter, nelson with the kick drop back by jackson and folks. there he goes. he outruns the lincoln defense for the 80-yard touchdown. 24-20 lions. give me the 4th quarter. one minute left. galileo 34-30, last chance for the mustangs. lincoln quarterback fumbles the football! oh!! galileo recovers and wins their first city championship since 2009, 34-30 the final.
